I have always argued that mexicans in the USA, specially the Southwest, shouldn’t feel ashamed of their ethnic background. They should assert their americanness no matter what. They should assert that spanish has a history in the Southwest. That we are an essencial component of California.
For far too long have we felt the force of the blue eyes upon our dark skin.
Don’t let anyone question your americanness because of the color of your skin, because of the accent you speak.
